The Old You

October 4, 2008
By Megan Clark, Barrington, NH

The old you didn't laugh with them
Didn't ignore me when I said "hi"
The old you was so kind to me
Now you just make me cry.

The old you didn't taunt me
Didn't laugh at all my quirks
The old you loved every piece of me
Didn't hang out with those jerks.

The old you said you loved me
And promised our love would last
But things are different now
And those days have passed.
